Joe Vaughn of Skyris Imaging in Portland says he owns the unmanned aerial device that alarmed a Seattle woman concerned about a “peeping drone.”
KING-TV reports says he contacted Seattle police when he learned of the news story to let them know who he was and what had happened.
He says he was hired by a developer in Seattle to snap a few photos of various points of interest. He says his company only flies over properties where they have permission.
Vaughn says he also reached out to the woman who was concerned when she spotted a drone outside her 26th floor downtown Seattle apartment window on Sunday morning while she was getting dressed.
Seattle police tell KOMO-TV they’re still investigating, but right now they don’t believe the company broke any laws.
